How I like to work with people
As an Advisor

I like to be hands on with the start-ups that advise. However, my goal is not to come in change everything and overstep the founders. Rather, my role is to help start-ups grow by making connections, providing valuable/actionable insights and assist is bringing down barriers that are preventing progress.
